February 05, 2021
If the first weeks of 2021 are any indication of how this year will be, we can say that we are experiencing a Second Cold War, this time, on the global cyber battlefield.

Lessons from 2020: Preparing for the unthinkable

Despite 2020 being one of the strangest and most unpredictable years in our lifetime, the effects produced by the coronavirus were nothing new: interruptions in the supply chain, social and political unrest and the disruption of business continuity.

Most of us, when we are looking for something specific, we start with open sources like Google to search what we are looking for. Thousands of links come up saying that they are the best, best equipment, best course, etc.…Then you try to make sense of it all and that’s where the problem starts. Unless you already know where to go, you are going to need someone to tell you what is good and what is not.
